Roles and responsibilities: Governance Refresher : Recorded

Overview of Learning

This course is ideal for those governors and trustees looking for a refresher and sector update. With the ever-changing educational landscape and the role of governance within it, this course will ensure you are up to date with the DfE’s expectations of governance. By the end of the session, you will have:

  • Revisited the three core functions of governance
  • Examined how the Competency Framework for Effective Governance links to these functions
  • Reviewed good practice approaches to school governance
  • Considered Ofsted’s expectations under the Education Inspection Framework


All governors, trustees, local governors and members of schools and academies. This is intended for more experienced governors as a refresher and not those new to the role.


Mrs Marie Foley, Governance Training Officer
